Long Description:
This particular pendulum moved from the original home of the Indiana State Museum where it had hung since 1968 to the new building within the White River State Park in 2002. Due to the shortening of the cable, the pendulum is somewhat more unpredictable. Still a popular exhibit, a peg is knocked down every 8.3 minutes. (Information taken from Indianapolis Monthly, 2003, article entitled "Swing Shift")
